Now who would have guessed that I could tear up upon hearing news from some
54.6 million kilometers away? But Opportunity the Mars Rover and her last words did make lots of people sad, me included.
So today I’m celebrating little persistent Oppy with this free design (scroll to see the link to PDF file). Enjoy!

Today has been a great day: I managed to drop my wiggly toddler (WT) at his grandmothers house and found myself in the rare occasion of having a couple of free hours. At first I was running around trying to get my hands on every unfinished project in sight (lots and lots of those!), but then I felt SO VERY CREATIVE.
This little lady has been haunting me for some time now, especially after I saw her Cat Cosplay version. So today Happy Stitch proudly presents —

Did you miss me?
It seems that I haven’t posted for almost a year now. Did they tell you that life with a kid gets easier with time? Well, it’s not exactly true. Now I have a toddler on my hands (quite an active one), and oh how I miss those beautiful days when he had naps three times a day and went to bed at 6 am!
But then there is a bright side – I feel as creative as ever, and if I find just a handful of time, I create (and create, and create, and…. zzzzz……). There is a load of new designs in my Etsy shop, do check them out at https://www.etsy.com/shop/HappyStitchNet !
One more new thing too. Soon all my designs featured on Etsy chill also be available to be purchased and downloaded directly from this blog. Wait for the official announcement!
And here is a freebie pattern for every cat lover out there 🙂
